    Lincoln, VT, US | 7:00pm

    After almost a decade of performing as Bread and Bones we are playing our final concert February 9th at Burnham Hall in Lincoln Vt as part of the Burnham Music Series. Please join us if you can! We'll have some new tunes to share with you as well as old favorites. Doors open at 7. for details visit the Burnham Music Series on FB admission $8/ Bread and Bones "Ruane is a talented storyteller, painting whole scenes with his lyrics. Duquette has a lovely voice, and her soulfulness shines through. Barron is, for my money, the top acoustic bass player in Vermont. That variety and a solid sound are two of the reasons that Bread and Bones are attracting a growing fan base from the Caffe Lena in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. to coffeehouses in Maine and throughout Vermont." Robert Resnik VPR All The Traditions Vermont based Bread and Bones is a harmony driven acoustic trio that plays original music with a strong traditional-roots foundation. Richard Ruane has a very articulate style of guitar playing and extends that to ukelele, mandolin and banjos as well. Mitch Baron has a wonderful presence on fretless, fretted and upright basses. Beth Duquette completes the trio with a rich alto that weaves through the music. All three members contribute lead and harmony vocals. Since 2005 Ruane has been a songwriting finalist at the Kerrville Folk Festival in Texas, SolarFest Songwriter Showcase, Plowshares Coffeehouse Singer-Songwriter Competition and an award winner at the D.C. Mid-Atlantic Song Contest. They were selected for the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival's Emerging Artist Showcase. Their CD "I Know Stories" was named Vermont's Best Traditional Album.

    A Gala Music Weekend Benefit: 3 Nights, 25 Acts, 42 Musicians The Listening Room at MindFull Books presents three full nights of music on Friday, December 14th (7 to 11p.m.), Saturday, December 15th (7 to 11 p.m.), and Sunday, December 16th (5 to 10 p.m.). Unlike the usual weekly performances which begin at 8 p.m., shows will begin earlier (and run later) as indicated above. A donation of $10 per night is requested, and seating is limited. All musicians have performed previously at The Listening Room, and are donating their time, love, and energy for this event. MindFull Books & Ephemera and The Listening Room will be closing their doors by the end of the year, and need help to move on. Listening Room co-hosts John Sepe and Diane Stolar hope to re-establish the venue in another location. The music of the solo performers, duos, trios, and bands will span a range of genres including folk, jazzy blues and swing, acoustic instrumental, Chicago and Delta style blues, classical guitar, Americana, alternative/Indie, folk rock, acoustic roots. Over the course of the three nights, some of the finest singer-songwriters in New England will take the stage. Kicking off the weekend on Friday evening will be The Hip Swayers from Worcester, MA who delighted the audience this past July. Also appearing that night are Jane Fallon, John Schindler, David Lister, Peter Biedermann, Off The Cuff, Tim Cardiello, and People on Fire. Saturday night's line-up includes performances by Michael Orlen, Patti DeRosa, Owen Lodge, Craig Werth, Beth Duquette and Richard Ruane of Bread and Bones, Christopher Worth, Tom Smith, and Mark Mandeville and Raianne Richards. The Sunday evening show beginning at 5 p.m. features Tad Dreis, Hal Pederson and Jeanne Sable, Ursula and John Papp, Mark T. Small, two trios (Dan Warsham, Paul Belanger, and Dan Wheeler, and Doug Farrell, Steve Dionne, and Jack Carlton), and The Solar Sisters. Much loved regional favorite, The Terry Landis Band, will wrap up the weekend's festivities. Munchies and finger food to share with others are most welcome.
